Stuffed Caterpillar bread

(Samosa Masala Filling/Pizza Filling/ Nutella Filling)

Ingredients for Dough:

All-purpose flour      -2 cups
Warm milk                -3/4 cup or 12 tblspoon exact
Instant yeast              -1 tspoon
Baking Powder         -1/8 tspoon
Baking Soda             -1/8 tspoon
Sugar                        -1/2 tspoon
Salt                           -1 tspoon
Melted butter            -1 tblspoon
Oil                            -2 tblspoon
Milk powder            -2 tblspoon
Butter                     -1 tblspoon
Milk                       -2 tblspoon


Prepare the filling of your choice.

Warm 6 tblspoon of milk, add yeast and sugar to it. Mix ell and set aside for yeast to get frothy.
Take a deep mixing bowl, sieve the flour, baking powder, baking soda into it.
Now add milk powder and salt.
Add the oil, butter and mix together.
Now add the yeast mixed milk and start the kneading. Now gradually add rest of the 6 tblspoon of milk.
You might not need it all, so add it sparingly until your dough is nice and soft.
If more milk is needed to get a soft dough consistency, warm a little more and use.
Knead for a good 8-10 minutes. The more you knead the softer the bread results will be.
Touch a bit of oil with your fingertips and apply all over the ball of dough.
Cover in a bowl and set aside for 40 mins to one and half hour for it to double in size.
Now comes the part of shaping the rolls into caterpillars. Follow the instructions given below with pictures.

1. Divide the dough into 6 sections.
2. Start rolling each one into an oval/rectangular shape, about quarter inch or less thickness.

3. Brush with the butter, then cut strips about a third of the way into the oval on one of the longer sides of the rolled out dough.
4. Add your filling on the opposite side of where the strips have been cut.

5. Fold the dough over the filling to enclose it, then roll gently all the way to the end.

6. The strips will cover the top of the bun and give a pretty finish.
7. Pinch the ends of the strips under the dough so they do not open up during baking.

8. Place the caterpillar roll on a greased tray and repeat with the rest of the balls of dough.

9. Place them in a warm spot and allow the rolls to rest for about 30 minutes and expand again slightly.

When ready to bake, preheat the oven at 180c. Brush the butter and milk mix over the bread.
Bake for about 18-20 minutes or until the rolls are golden from all sides.
Remove and brush them with some butter mix.
Caterpillar are ready to serve with soups, chutneys in your parties. Kids love these innovative ideas.
